What is StudyTime Academy?

What’s the difference between StudyTime and StudyTime Academy?

At StudyTime we offer a large array of learning resources. From Walkthrough Guides, to articles, to videos, to print-outs, it’s easy to get confused about where to start.

We created StudyTime Academy as an extension of StudyTime, so we can offer all our comprehensive lesson-based video courses in one place. 

We currently have two types of courses: 

Our revision online workshops (paid), and our life skills online courses (free).

What’s the difference between these online workshops and the in-person workshops you run?

They are broadly similar in format but the in-person workshops allow for more interaction and personalised help. The online workshops are a good option for those who cannot make the in-person workshops, or afford to attend them.

I’ve already got the StudyTime Walkthrough Guides and workbooks, is it worth buying the online workshops?

Absolutely! Each of our resources are designed to add something different to your learning experience, and are designed to work together:


  • Walkthrough Guides: Designed for the effective and efficient learning of the concepts needed for success in NCEA exams.
  • Workbooks: Designed for effective practice of concepts and exam questions, answers and strategy for success in NCEA exams.
  • Online Workshops: Designed for efficient consolidation of all concepts and skills needed for a particular NCEA exam topic. From this, students will be able to reinforce all learning and identify gaps for further learning using the Walkthrough Guides, and further practice using the Workbooks.

How do I use StudyTime Academy?

I’ve bought my revision workshop, how do I access it?

You can access all your courses on the My Courses page.

Can I watch the online workshops on my phone or tablet?

Yep! All of our courses are mobile optimised.

About our courses:

Are the Life Skills courses actually free?

Yes! Once you have created a free StudyTime account, you now have access to enrol in our Life Skills courses. No credit card details required.

To get started, just visit the Life Skills enrolment page and we’ll walk you through the rest.

What is included in each online workshop?

Our workshops include full explanations of the key skills and concepts required for a standard. Even better, they include full worked examples from Achieved to Excellence. So, you’ll not only know the right answer, but also how we got there. 

Are the online workshops live-streamed or pre-recorded?

Our online workshops are pre-recorded, meaning you can watch at your own pace and convenience. If you get stuck, you can pause, rewind and replay sections until you understand the concept.
